Vividly Realistic 3D Murals by Eric Grohe


Meet Eric Grohe, a world-famous artist who designs and paints vividly realistic 3D paintings in the form of wall murals and architectural facades, transforming ordinary spaces into panoramic works of beauty, depth and inspiration[1]. You could say it’s the same as Julian Beever’s 3D Art (also using anamorphosis), except the illusion drawings are on the walls this time, but that would be doing Eric a disservice. Whilst painted in the American Realism style, his fantastical artworks open up portals to picturesque landscapes and times of the past. He’s created commemorative art for cities across the US and contributed to urban renewal projects too.

Eric Alan Grohe was born in New York City in 1944. His professional career as a graphic designer and illustrator began in Seattle in 1961. In 1973, he was asked to design graphics for Expo’74 in Spokane, Washington. At this time, he began receiving commissions for his beautiful paintings as street art, which have continued to grow in scope and size, leading to today’s large-scale trompe l’oeil murals. Throughout his 43-year career as a professional artist, Grohe has received national recognition for his public art, which is now focused on painting figurative and architectural wall artworks for clients throughout the country.
